Deloitte comments on the launch of the new Energy Efficiency Deployment Office (EEDO)
8 February 2012
Guy Battle, Deloitte’s Head of Sustainability comments on the Energy and Climate Change Secretary’s launch of the new Energy Efficiency Deployment Office (EEDO):
“Energy efficiency is good for the pocket and good for the environment. It makes sense and if our buildings did not have people in them, it would be much easier. Homes are for living and offices are for working, and the big problem facing us is that ultimately people have other top priorities.
“To many people energy efficiency still seems complicated and most people believe that it means sacrifice. No new technology is needed, it all exists. What is needed is a new language that will lead, over time, to a shift in culture and a shift in how we live our lives, so that living well means living efficiently. Government has a crucial role to play, but they must also engage business in this journey, not only as an example, but also in communicating and making it easy. From the DIY store that provides knowledge and financial incentives, to our manufacturers who make solutions accessible. We must ensure that everyone benefits and that this becomes a win-win situation for all.”
